The power of inspiration!
Today is my birthday and I looked around google & youtube for “amazing wallet” and found a couple of really interesting “Duct Tape Wallet” and their instructions on how to make one!!
My brother ultimately bought me a new wallet for my birthday but I am very inspired by those 14 – 15 years old making a living selling duct tape wallets!
So comes my decisions to buy two rolls of duct tapes (black & white), a box cutter, plastic name card holder and the rest of the already have materials like cutting mat, ruler, zip lock bag and a little aluminum foil.
Total cost is about $15 but can be cheaper if I didn’t buy the box cutter haiz.
Then I cut many 0.5 cm strips for later use :D
I never follow other people’s measurement but my own new wallet instead! More strips!
I taped up the front of the strips and proceed to make the woven checker box design!
The beginning I’m struggling to keep it tight
Eventually I managed to tighten all the strips after many many rough touches and eventually it worked!
Now for the standard folds for the bill notes :D
The center fold for more credit cards
I inserted some aluminum foil to prevent RFID credit card theft but not sure if it will work.
Added 4 credit card slots! Nice!
The checkered design suppose to be at the back making one more folds for more bill slots
I.D. slots preparation, eventually I didn’t go with the frame method but just taped the sides as it’s really difficult! hehe.
More credit card slots! Total of 8 slots!
Finally completed the duct tape wallet with a zip lock coin bag!!
